This New Minecraft Update Just Might Be The Best One Yet!
This is seriously exciting.
Minecraft players can now join up with their besties, regardless of what platform they have, thanks to Microsoft’s new Better Together update.
That’s right, it doesn’t matter if you have it on Xbox and your buddy has it on Windows 10 or mobile - everyone can now link up and play together.

But that’s not all! Here’s how excited Minecraft is: “And not only that! It lets you access oodles of player-made goodness on Marketplace!"
"It lets you take that Marketplace goodness from one device to another! It lets you play your Realm on console (for example), hop off, then pick up where you left off on your phone! It lets you join massive servers, with communities numbering in millions of players and eccentric minigames to suit every taste!"
“And that’s just the stuff we’re doing on top of the core game itself. This new version of Minecraft also introduces the supported platforms to parrots, banners, armour stands, stained glass, fireworks, new world start options, new game rules, host options, the recipe book and loads, loads more. All that, and it lets you marvel at the True Beauty™ of coarse dirt for the first time! Wow! Coarse dirt! Just, wow.”
The new “fancypants” (Microsoft’s own words!) update is live now, across all platforms (and if you’re still waiting for the game on Switch, apparently there “a lot of work to do to make it happen” but they’re still working on it).
Wondering what else is new? Here’s our picks of the latest games!
